Excerpt from Chicago Sun-Times 11/28/93: John Shea
Article: John Shea Relishes Evil Role
Chicago Sun-Times November 28, 1993 Author: Scott Williams
NEW YORK As the evil financier and archvillain Lex Luthor of ABC's "Lois and Clark," actor John Shea is perfectly willing to steal from the poor, trip old ladies and swipe lollipops from big-eyed children.
But there's one thing he will not do.
"The hair stays," said Shea, grinning. He won't shave his head to portray the traditional, hairless Evil Scientist depicted in DC Comics' tales of the Man of Steel. And it's not Shea's vanity.
"Hey, this is the '90s. Do you think a billionaire like Luthor couldn't get himself a full head of hair?" Shea points out. "Lex Luthor has got to be a modern villain."
